Academic Support at WCC

At Westminster, we don’t just say we’re committed to your success, we mean it.

As a student, you’ll have access to all kinds of support—from academic advising to tutoring. It means you’ll get one-on-one service from someone who takes the time to get to know you. Current Westminster Students can also access the Academic Support & Resources section of the main Rider University Web site for other available services.

Types of Support

Academic Advising

You’ll be paired with a faculty advisor from your major department who can assist you with course selection and offer advice about your academic and career goals.
